Cast of 30, approximate duration 10-15 minutes.

This assembly on Malta focuses primarily on the country's history, with the opening question of how such a tiny country can have had such an important part to play in two world wars? It is a story of great courage as shown by an entire population – duly rewarded with the George Cross in 1942 by King George VI.
